Peruvian food has become one of the most popular cuisines with a plethora of restaurants serving up traditional dishes that locals and tourists love. Here’s our guide to the most delicious Peruvian restaurants in the 3-0-5.

1. Sabor A Peru

Restaurant, Peruvian

Right off Biscayne Boulevard and 29th street, this former hole-in-the-wall has become a coveted spot, always buzzing with loyal patrons willing to wait in line for a seat. The décor is humble, but that’s okay because the real show-stopper here is the food.

El Chalan has been catering to a loyal following since 1985. The Peruvian restaurant located on Bird Road serves delicious traditional homemade Peruvian plates at lower prices than most others of its kind. Homey and authentic, everything here tastes just like it would in Lima, Peru.
